Sketch Saturday #313

Good morning! Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  Boy, was it ever stormy yesterday!  We had lots of pop-up downpours and thunderstorms all afternoon.  Good day to be inside!  Anyway, I am here this morning with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  We are sponsored by Sassy Cheryl's Stamps, who are offering a $5 GC to the lucky winner of the challenge.

Here is the fun sketch, designed by Alex:

Here is my card:

I decided to flip the sketch.  My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Collectable "Memorable" 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is No. 2 Pencil & a Dream from Sassy Cheryl's. I printed the digi on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added in the sky and grass with my Copics, too.  I did a bit of doodling around the image panel.  A couple of K & Co. SMASH banners and a few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Sketch Saturday blog and check out the fantastic creations from the rest of the Saturday Girls and our guest designer for June, Anja!  We hope you will join in this week!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's Challenge # 210 (doodle it up)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #106 (anything goes)
Digitally Sweet Challenge #91 (for the girls)

Have a great day and see you soon!
